Woolly lawnmowers

All three of our lawnmowers are broken.  In the fall I say to myself, "I should really take one of those in and get it looked at."   But I have all winter to do it, and then pretty soon it's so snowy you can't get to the lawnmower shed.    So here I am in the spring again, at the end of a long list of other people who also waited until the last minute to try to get their lawnmowers working again.    But luckily in the meantime we have a secret weapon:
Handsome Ben
 Ben will move the sheep (AKA woolly lawnmowers) where ever I want them.   He is happy to sit and watch  to keep them in the right grazing spot. 

 The woolly lawnmowers are hard at work: they trim edges, they fertilize as they mow!  All you have to do is keep them away from the flowers, which is where Ben comes in.

Gremlin may be a keeper for the herding flock.  He's got a lot of character for a tiny thing, and is extra cute even in a field of cuteness.
